Happy Monday friends! Today’s song of the day is Magnolia by yet another Aussie band, Gang of Youths. As most of you can tell through the short existence of this blog, I love music videos as a purely imaginative and interestingly marketable addition to songs. This video for Magnolia perfectly embodies that extra visual magic, as I really can’t think of this song anymore without picturing the music video.
Magnolia really caught my eye when it ranked #21 on Triple J’s Hottest 100 list for 2015. For those who don’t know, Triple J is arguably the most popular radio station in Australia, and every year they have an online fan vote for the top 100 songs of the year. This list is special because is differs vastly from standard Billboard Top 100 lists in America or most other places with its inclusion of much more alternative and electronic music. I highly suggest looking into that list if you’re feeling exploratory!
